Penn International 975CS —
Casting Series Version of Popular International 975 Baitcaster
The 15- to 20-lb. class 975CS is ideal for a wide variety of inshore and offshore saltwater applications. With no level wind mechanism, the 975CS provides superior casting distance — ideal for reaching blues and stripers in the surf, tempting tarpon or reds on the flats or flylining live baits to school-sized tuna and dolphin. West Coast anglers will also find Penn’s 975CS tailor-made for battling tough island yellowtail, white seabass and calicos.
Penn International 955 and 975 Baitcasting Reels.
The new narrow spool 955 is engineering for light tackle saltwater fishing. Providing the perfect balance of finesse and firepower, this 12-lb. class reel is ideal for casting light lures and live baits to tough inshore gamefish. The new 975 has the power and line capacity to beat the baddest dish from the backcountry to the blue water. The versatile 15-lb. to 20-lb. class is tough enough to handle heavy duty inshore to medium offshore fishing for school tuna, yellowtail, dolphin and more.
Every Penn International baitcasting reel features a lightweight, one piece forged machined aluminum frame. The spool is machined from solid bar stock aluminum. Both smooth, contoured side plates are forged, machined aluminum. The frame, spool and side plates are finished with Penn's trademark gleaming gold anodized finish, for the durability, corrosion resistance and good looks saltwater anglers demand.
The Guts to Take It.
Inside every Penn Internationl® baitcasting reel you'll find a machined, stainless steel main gear and pinion gear, delivering unparalleled strength and a fast gear ratio.
No Going Back.
A special one way roller bearing provides "infinite anti-reverse" for rock solid hook sets and silky smooth performance. No handle slop or "kick back" whatsoever.
Smooth Flying Ahead.
Two aircraft quality sealed stainless steel ball bearings, plus a third one way rolled bearing give the Penn International baitcasting reels unequalled smoothness.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
Simply Outstanding....which they should be considering the tariff
December 6, 2014
I own two of these reels, the 965 and the 975CS. By far the best Penn reels I've ever owned. Use them for light tackle jigging and for fluke fishing...I especially like the 975CS for fluke fishing as you can easily control the release of extra line with your thumb after the initial bite. Have pried 40 inch stripers off the bottom of the Chesapeake with no issue. Have owned the 965 for almost 11 years, it is made like a tank. Both handle 20-30 pound braid with no ill effects. Only wish they were cheaper...
